When we don’t respond, you get mad and tell us how bad we are, but apparently you don’t understand that when we hear our name, look back at you and then continue with our game, we’re also saying “just a minute”.

Dog Tattoos – A Horrifying New Trend

Posted on: April 5, 2013 - 21 Comments

I am horrified by this interview with a man who has made headlines by elaborately tattooing his dogs. As if one man doing this weren't disgusting enough, the worldwide attention he is garnering is only going to encourage others to do the same.

Our Newest (little) Addition

Posted on: March 2, 2011 - 55 Comments
